Myth: TFL Server Solution Launched
3:07 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Myth Village sent us details on a very interesting new developement in the Myth: The Fallen Lords saga. As you may recall, the Bungie server for the original strategy game has been down for a number of months; despite Bungie's promises, this server has never been restored to active service after being shut down during the Bungie/Microsoft merger.
Now Marius.net has been launched in response. This server requires just a few easy downloads to be placed in your Myth: TFL directory in order to work. Once you're in, everything should behave in a manner similar to the Bungie.net servers. Here's a clip explaining more from their site:
As you know, Myth:TFL on bungie.net has been down for quite some time. As fans have tried with varying degrees of success to find alternatives for the bungie.net experience, it just cannot replace the look and feel of the actual server. With no definite word from Bungie on when we could expect the server back, Team marius.net was created.For much more information and to start downloading the necessary files, head over to the Marius web site now. There is also a good FAQ which should provide any help you might need.
With Myth:TFL on Bungie.net down, it wasn't as easy as it could have been. Many interesting issues came up, and a ton of guess work and mind-numbing sifting through session logs and assembly listings. Although Bungie was not able to help us directly by giving us the server and/or client code, for various reasons, they were able to clarify some items and eliminate some of the guesswork involved.
